Zoolander Poster reviewer: Richard Sawyer

directed by: Ben Stiller
written by: Drake Sather and Ben Stiller
starring: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Christine Taylor, Will Ferrell

This is a film you’ll either love or hate. Stiller and Wilson combine perfectly on screen, as seen in their recent exploits as Starsky and Hutch. They are ably assisted by an all star cast, full of clever cameos and quality throughout. Will Ferrell, as he so often does, manages to steal the show as the evil Mugatu.

The plot is “great”; for years male models have been used as assassins in order to keep the fashion industries costs down. Highlights include, a David Bowie hosted walk-off and a freak everyday gasoline fight accident.

You’ll probably know already if you are going to like this movie, if your not sure, does the phrase “The Derek Zoolander School for kids that don’t read good” make you smile? If so, this film is for you.
